While hiring a commercial roofing contractor is expensive, it will save you more in the long run.  

It is true that a roof installation will come with a substantial price tag, but attempting to complete a roof replacement without an experienced and knowledgeable contractor could lead to costly mistakes. When a roof replacement or installation is done incorrectly, you could be left paying for repairs or another full replacement only a few years after the installation. Hiring a professional in the first place is an excellent way to make a long-term investment into your building to ensure its functionality for many years down the road. 

If you are not sure who to hire or how to find a reputable contractor, consider browsing the RoofersCoffeeShop® contractor directory or check for contractors who have a National Roofing Contractor Association (NRCA) ProCertification. As always, check in with other building owners to see what contractors they recommend. 

Hiring a quality commercial contractor is your best option, and will come with the following benefits: 

1 – Experience  

One minor mistake on a reroof project could lead to disaster down the line. Certified and experienced contractors have extensive knowledge of roofs and how they function, including common errors that can lead to leaky or dysfunctional roofs.  

In fact, a reputable contractor might even find minor problems already present on your roof, provide a diagnosis and fix the small problems before they snowball into expensive endeavors. 

2 – High quality materials, equipment and tools 

Certified contractors have access to the materials you need to get your roofing project done right the first time. They will also have the necessary equipment to perform a high-quality job.  

3 – Time and money savings 

Experienced contractors will prevent future roofing problems and attain the roofing supplies you need at a cheaper price. They will also complete the project in a timely manner. This means avoiding frequent and inconvenient Band-Aid repairs that not only hurt your wallet, but take up valuable time.  

4 – Safety 

Roofing is a dangerous job and should not be attempted by novice craftsmen. When it comes to outdoor or DIY related accidents, falling off a roof or ladder is one of the most common and most lethal. Save yourself a trip to the hospital and hire a contractor who will know and come prepared with all the needed safety procedures and gear to get your roofing job done safely. 

5 – Insured and licensed  

When you hire an insured, licensed contractor you can rest easy knowing this contractor has done all the necessary training to be officially certified to work as a roofing contractor. An insured contractor also means that if an accident does occur on the job, the workers are protected.
